Nicer in November

Welcome! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Like Karin yesterday I feel the need to show you one (or two!) more fall cards - they are my favorites after all! And I did promise a tutorial on a new technique too - it's actually a mini technique, cause it's just a spin on an old technique!

Here goes~

I started my background layer by dabbing a wadded up piece of paper towel on a yellow dye ink pad and (after blotting it on scrap paper), I rubbed it from corner to corner on white cs.

Step 2 was to to the same thing using orange ink and adding color to the top right corner.

Step 3 was adding red ink to the bottom left corner (sorry about it looking pink here - scanners, go figure!)

Step 4 was to take a wet towel (in this case a baby wipe) and drag it from the top right corner to the bottom left corner, adding some very cool shading to my background in about a second and a half!

Step 5 was to layer it on black cs and then plum cs and then on a folded black card as you see here and adding our "not so new" anymore Delightful November Greeting to the bottom right corner

The pumpkins were "stolen" from our Bountiful Basket stamp and popped up on foam tape.
I love how fast & easy I went from a blank piece of cs to a very colorful one!

It was so fast I had time to make this birthday card for my nephew using the same technique.

After masking both top and bottom, I sponged yellow and orange ink in the center. I then stamped our Medium Silhouette Leaf and our Small Silhouette Leaf using versamark ink and clear embossed. Next I sponged on green and brown inks and I once again wiped a baby wipe across it to give it the illusion of moving, as well as removing the ink from the silhouette leaves! Less than 15 minutes from start to finish for the whole card!

Thanks for stopping by!
